zeroinstall: The Zero Install system1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0]

The Zero Install system makes software installation not merely easy, but unnecessary. Users run their applications directly from the Internet from the software author's pages. Caching makes this as fast as running a normal application after the first time, and allows off-line use.
